Less is More and Mama Elephant's Birthday Party


I LOVE Halloween! So I made a bunch of Halloween cards today for the LIM challenge - one layer witches or wizards. I have no wizard stamp at all - my selection for witches is better...

This is my favorite card - I may post the other ones some other time....



The witch is from craft smart, the other stamps are Martha Stewart. I colored it with Copics. I had to give her some googly eyes - I could not resist....

I am also linking this up with Inkspirational - Anything goes

--X--

Watch out - there are a lot of pictures coming up......

And then I thought I share with you my fun afternoon I had yesterday. I went with Ren-Yi and my sister to the birthday bash from Mama Elephant in Hoboken. We went crazy with stamp shopping and we did some make and takes - below are mine.




I used the set Winter Wonderland for it. The sentiment is from Merry Greetings. 
The tags are made with their tag die cut set and I also used the Party set for it. So much fun!
I am linking this card with the Simon Says Challenge - use a stamp



And here is Ren-Yi and myself


with my sister


and can you believe it - Kryssi herself - and she is as nice as she looks like!
Too bad I don't have a picture of Angela - of course she was there as well.


After the party was over we strolled around in Hoboken - its such a vibrant little town and the weather was perfect.


There is a German restaurant in town



Here are some excerpts from their menu - this is for my German followers - we had some good laughs here....



But I'll explain - there is no such thing as Bavarian onion rings
Lever-kaese - correct spelling: Leberkäse
Brauenwurst - I have no idea what that is supposed to be - its not German, that's for sure
and lastly the 
Wienerschnitzel ala Holstein  - an oxymoron

And the best for last - my sister trying out the latest apron fashion:


Have a great evening and thanks for visiting!
